Park Theatre is the brainchild of Artistic Director, Jez Bond, and Creative Director, Melli Bond, who – following a six year London-wide search for a building – discovered a vacant office block next to Finsbury Park station in 2010. Garnering support from the theatre community at large – including luminaries such as Ian McKellen and Alan Rickman, the press and, importantly, local residents they set out to raise the necessary funds to convert the tired concrete building into a thriving new theatre and beacon for the community. At a cost of just £2.6 million, the building, designed by David Hughes Architects, opened in May 2013 to rave reviews from the critics.
★★★★★ “A stunning £2.5 million playhouse.” Guardian
Highlights of the opening season included the UK premiere of These Shining Lives by Melanie Marnich with a superb cast which included Honeysuckle Weeks and Charity Wakefield and the world premiere of Oliver Cotton’s Daytona, starring Maureen Lipman – which went on a UK tour.
★★★★ “Shining ladies light up our newest stage.” Daily Mail
★★★★ “Charity Wakefield is transfixing in the lead role.” Evening Standard
★★★★ Telegraph “This is a compelling and deeply humane production and one I warmly recommend”
★★★★ The Times “I have never seen Lipman stronger”
